Ryan staff members will make use of interactive tools and screen demonstrations to instruct the audience on effective and efficient ways to use medical records to collect data points necessary for quality improvement activities, program analysis, and reporting. The audience will be able to actualize the transition between data capture and reporting back to funders. The Data Manager, Assistant Coordinator of HIV Testing and Linkage to Care, and the Supervising Case Manager have helped with the successful implementation of a network-wide EHR system. Ryan’s experience comes from its chosen EHR system, eClinicalWorks, which will be used as a model during the workshop. On a daily basis, these staff members are responsible for data entry, reporting, quality assurance, and oversight of the Ryan Network’s expansive HIV Programming.

Learning Objectives:

  • Using paper exercises, staff will guide the audience in creating a crosswalk based on data elements required for both reporting and evaluation, to be collected in existing fields or structured data fields, which close the data capture gaps in EMR. Staff will provide best practices on the most appropriate area for collecting and documenting data required for external reporting.
  • Staff will demonstrate how to extract data using data extraction solutions, such as Cognos and BridgeIT. Staff will then illustrate how to import the data into other data analysis tools to support quality management activities to furnish data for reporting. Data analysis tools could include Access, Excel, EpiInfo, ERA, or EMR packaged reporting tools.
  • Using handouts and flowcharts, staff will provide an overview of the process of pushing data to external reporting tools, such as CAREWare or AIRS, to satisfy various funders, including HRSA. This could include an electronic push or manual data entry, with the ultimate goal of submitting an RSR.
